New Candykiller Print

This is the other semi-secret project I've been working on. This print was done for Brian Taylor basically as payment for the logo he created for LP. Since he wanted a two-color print, in a larger run, the cost was pretty high so he is letting me sell some of these to recoup the extra cost.

The Details:

•8x10 inch
•Inked letterpress
•Two-color, white and maroon, on French Construction Cement Green 100 lb stock
•Signed/numbered total edition of 200 (most are going to Brian)


(For purchasing information visit Brian's website and locate his contact information.)

He has been exhibiting in numerous galleries across the US & Canada. He states, "Having grown up on the West Coast most of my life and coming from a family of uber ‘antique’ collectors and artists, my eclectic upbringing was filled with a wide range of ’Pop’ ephemera. Many of those inspirations now show up in my work and stem from the backdrop of my childhood."

Secret Project #1

One of the projects I was working on was a header card for a toy by artist Tim Biskup.
What's a header card you ask? Well, most Japanese (and some American) toys are packaged in bags instead of boxes, and a card is folded and stapled over the top of the bag like this:

I was really excited to be working on this because Tim is one of the biggest artists in the world. He has shown his paintings all over the States, in Japan, Spain, etc. and they sell for up to tens of thousands of dollars. What makes it even more special for me, is that Tim spent quite a bit of his youth right here in Fresno, CA. It's always nice to see a local boy make it big.
Beside painting Tim also designs toys for the Designer Vinyl scene, and the header is for his version of Gargamel's Zagoran figure:

Secret Projects

Have a couple projects going on that I can't really talk about just yet. This is very hard for me, so I had to at least create a teaser post about them.
One is a print for the artist Brian Taylor, who created the LP logo Presston. Mum's the word until it's printed and shipped. I may have a few for sale at that time.
The other project is totally hush-hush, and is a custom job for a very big artist. Will post info as soon as I'm able.
